Something I have always had a question about. I read about fishing line being used for guitar/ukulele strings and Classical Guitar strings and about many different tunnings, DGBE, GCEA, gCDA, and so on. What should one go by? Name of String? Size of String. Both? A mix?

If you search for Seaguar, you'll find a number of threads with info. In a nutshell, it is a combination of Seaguar Premier and Blue Label. The basic idea behind it is to get diameters that match Worth string diameters.

...a number of threads... No, that is like a gold mine of information or a study for a PHD degree in strings. I read for over two hours and did not even scratch the surface. I found one thread that I really like and plan to try: fishing line ukulele string recipe started by ratjungle 9-13-2009, 10 pages. If anyone has a string question, this is for sure the place to go. Thank you very much John (70sSan0).
